Hey Princeps,

I'm coming down the home stretch on my modular AT18 boards. You can see a finished one to the right and one with just the bottom skin and support structure on the right (waiting on the top skin.

It's all made of 1/8 inch styrene and magnetized to hold together on the table top in any configuration you like.

When they're all built, I'll black out the sides, but am looking for input on what to do with the tops.

To make them as utilitarian as possible I'm thinking about simply texturing most of the top surface, excepting smooth patches for "roads" and paint them much like the AT mat from Deep Cut Studios here, but with a more "winter" feel.

Thought and suggestions?

I guess one of the main questions is, is this going to be a an urban terrain set exclusive?

Excellent question.

My thought is that if I simply leave smooth "roads" without explicitly painting them as such, I can have the best of both worlds. They'll only seem like roads if they have buildings beside them. Otherwise, jagged/rocky terrain pieces can cross/cover them as needed.
